Let’s Call It Trumpvirus: If you’re feeling awful, you know who to blame (New York Times op ed)
Yeah, when you think of Mike Pence you maybe don’t think about Pandemic Fighter Supreme. But as President Trump pointed out repeatedly, he has already run Indiana.
Well, it probably could have been worse. Having a czar does make you feel there’s somebody in charge. At least Trump didn’t come before the cameras and announce solemnly, “Today I’m asking every American to cross your fingers.”
My idea, backed by solid evidence, is that NYT staffers have some kind of bet going to see who can write the most asinine op ed that is swallowed by progs. This one was swallowed whole.
Given the actual number of infections in the USA compared to China, or even South Korea, it must be that President Trump, probably via mysterious manly health rays, is keeping us all from getting sick.
It’s surreal, though, isn’t it, watching the left descend into ever deeper pits of Hell? These people are supposed to be our intellectual betters. If they are, and certainly we should accept they are, then we are well and truly Doomed.
Students at the London School of Economics voted to “ban beef” on the university campus, in a move which could pave the way for the institute becoming the third UK university to eliminate beef from its menus.
Last year Goldsmiths college, part of the University of London, removed beef from its menus as part of its efforts to become carbon neutral by 2025. The University of Cambridge also last year stopped serving beef and lamb, cutting emissions from its catering service by 10.5 per cent…
A major research study published last year concluded that reducing meat and dairy intake is one of the most effective change people can make to reduce their environmental footprint.
This was global warming and not so much anti-meat, but the flavor of it is in there.
You must always remember that the madness that is on campus does not stay on campus. The brats are awarded “degrees” which they use to get jobs, and in those jobs the carry the infection.
Companies don’t have a lot of meat laying around their break rooms, but it’s not a bad bet to have some purple-hair-led HR deparment promulgate a company policy that refuses to reimburse beef bought at restaurants when traveling or entertaining.
An image of a decidedly unhygienic sign admonishing bus passengers in China to practice good hygiene by spitting outside the window has gone viral on English language social media as the Wuhan coronavirus rages.
The photo was originally captured by a Chinese netizen on March 3, 2018 while taking the 176 Bus in Nanchang City, the capital of Communist China’s Jiangxi Province. The netizen was shocked at the sign and felt compelled to take a photo of it and post it on the web.
The sign reads, “Be hygienic, prevent the flu. Please spit out the window”…
Good advice, of course, to spit into the street. But where have these Chinese citizens been spitting before the sign, a place which was noticed and necessitated the sign?
Say, I wonder if this has anything to do with the easy spread of viruses.
The Harvard epidemiology professor said he believes approximately 40 to 70 percent of people around the world will be infected with the coronavirus within the upcoming year, but most cases will not be life-threatening. “It’s likely that many will have mild disease, or may be asymptomatic,” he explained.
Good grief! The rate isn’t even that high in Wuhan, the epicenter. I want to laugh, but I realize I am not from Harvard.
Commandant Gen. David Berger took to Twitter Friday morning to announce what he sees as the most important issues to address in the Marine Corps.
These are the “most important matters for immediate execution,” he wrote in an eight-tweet thread.
The tweets are not orders announcing revisions to Marine Corps policy, but instead are areas where Berger wants the Corps to research and see if improvements can be made, Maj. Eric Flanagan, a spokesman for the commandant, told Marine Corps Times in a Friday phone call.
While I am aware of the good work already being done across the force in support of my planning guidance implementation, these are some of my most important matters for immediate execution. (1/8)

…In addition to attempting to rid the Corps of sexual- and gender-related violence in the wake of Marines United, the Corps set a goal to increase the number of women in its ranks…
Berger said the Marine Corps should review the feasibility of recruiting female Marines already serving in the reserves and find ways to get them to return to active duty and potentially enter combat-related jobs that were previously gender-restricted….
Berger said he also wants the Corps to “identify the costs associated with implementing a new one-year paid maternity leave policy, along with the benefits and risks, and make a formal recommendation.”
In another tweet, he said he wants to revise the Corps’ parental leave policy “to include parental leave for adoptive parents, to include same-sex couples.”
The Marine Corps plan to weaken its forces is moving much faster than expected. Have to admit that when the Corps put their mind to something, they get it done.
Not to be outdone, my ex-employer jumps into the sky, as the next Item shows.
We only need the headline. Gone are the lyrics—and this is all from memory from one night thirty years ago at the NCO club—“Up into air, men!” to be replaced by “Do what thou wilt, ladies, zis, xers, furries, trannies, ladyboys, queers and neutrals!”
Link is to a video, unconfirmed. Claim is that Norway benevolent government kidnaps children to prevent “religious indoctrination”, i.e. Christianity. Start at 4:50.
The film in question, The Trouble With Being Born, centers on a humanoid robot resembling a 10-year-old child and its relationship with a middle-aged man that it calls ‘Daddy’.
Although, some of the more troubling ideas behind this relationship aren’t explicitly shown, it is definitely implied. And the envelope-pushing nature of the subject may not be for everyone.
Who could have guessed movie elites would move to mainstream sex with prepubescent kids next? I mean, what are the odds? Nobody could have foreseen this. Dude, right outta left field. Complete surprise. Et cetera.
Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”
